Ormiston Gorge ,NT Central Australia

Ormiston Gorge is near Alice Springs and Uluru in Central Australia.

Phil, a friend of mine took this shot.

With his permission I processed it, to what my idea of the perfect Billabong would look like.

Th Perfect Billabong.

Th Perfect Billabong.

A Billabong is normally made by a serpentine river getting one of it’s bends by- passed by the flow of the river,bursting it’s banks and finding an easier path.

They are sometimes called Ox Bow lakes.

But any waterhole in Australia can be called a Billabong.

Why? Easier to say than Waterhole!
